Authors report a case of diencephalic syndrome which was observed in the patient with astrocytoma in the region of anterior hypothalamus and optic chiasm. An enlarged head, emaciation and hyperactive response were the symptoms. The subject, 8-month-old female infant, was bright and alert and had a history of failure to gain weight for months in spite of the fact that the child had eaten well. Skull X-rays showed no significant pathological findings but for enlarged head with suture separation. Conray ventriculography and CT scanning disclosed signs of presence of tumor in the suprasellar region. Craniotomy for removal of the tumor was followed by ventriculoperitoneal shunt.
